Running from November 12-19, the week of action for the middle class will see Liberal Members of Parliament holding events and meeting with voters to highlight the work they are doing to support the middle class and those working hard to join it in their community.

In Ontario, a variety of events are taking place, including Majid Jowhari, Member of Parliament for Richmond Hill, will be serving coffee at a local Tim Horton’s drive through and speaking with constituents over coffee; Geng Tan, Member of Parliament for Don Valley North, is touring a local food bank to speak with volunteers and staff about their challenges and opportunities ahead of the holiday season; Chandra Arya, Member of Parliament for Nepean, is hosting a town hall for senior constituents to connect with them about the issues that most concern them.

Since 2015, Liberal Members of Parliament have been focussing on delivering real change for Canadians. Their actions are working.

That’s exactly what I’m doing. The Week of Action is all about highlighting all that we have accomplished for Ontario’s families and businesses, and continue to tackle the challenges ahead of us together.”
